FortiClient VPN Linux Binaries for ARM Architecture

Since FortiClient is already ported with support for ARM CPU architecture on the Android and Windows platforms (e.g. for MS Surface Pro X), can we get a version of the current Ubuntu/Debian Linux package compiled for ARM x64 and/or ARM x32?

 

The Raspberry Pi 4 has plenty of power to handle an RDP session to my workstation at the office for drafting. However, the company has standardized on FortiClient for VPN access with FortiToken 2-factor authentication which relegates me to using the web based VPN & RDP client. The web based client is ok in a pinch but it leaves a lot to be desired for everyday use in a production environment.

So far there hasn't been many interest on linux support by fortinet, the linux client is really old (it has had only minimal changes since ubuntu 16.04, basically to keep it working with current fortinet versions).

Also you can only download the current version from the private area of fortinet (contrary to the rest of vpn clients)

If you need help with the linux version I fighted with all of them so just ask :)

Was there ever any progress on a FortiClient linux arm64 or arm32 build?
